Introducing: the 73 year old who lifted 200,000+ lbs repeatedly for 4 hours.

Sanjay Rawal, the heartful film director of the inspiring documentary Challenging Impossibility shares how his humble spiritual teacher repeatedly achieved seemingly impossible physical feats while he was alive.

The source of Sri Chinmoy’s power: inner peace.

Rawal explains how Sri Chinmoy utilized inner states to achieve astonishing outer states, and believed physical practices can (and should) be used as an active part of our spiritual pursuits. He shares how Chinmoy was actually able to lift more as he got older (in other words – his spiritual strength grew).

Sri Chinmoy believed the essential essence of human beings is only attainable through meditation — be it a meditation in motion, or in stillness. Tune in to this astonishing episode to hear firsthand how your spiritual practice can fuel your athletic performance.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • The types of meditation that Sri Chinmoy practiced
